SENIOR COMPLETES INTERNSHIP AT AEROSPACE CORPORATION

Juan Hernandez, a senior engineering physics major, is co-founder and project manager of Lenoir-Rhyne’s Balloon Engineering and Rocketry (BEAR) team, and this summer he was selected for a prestigious internship with the Aerospace Corporation. Hernandez completed the internship at the company’s headquarters in El Segundo, California, during the summer break. He was among 250 undergraduate and graduate interns selected from across the country from universities including University of California Berkeley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and California Institute of Technology. 

During the internship, Hernandez worked in the battery evaluation laboratory testing space cells for satellites and payloads. “We tested batteries for life span and functionality in space-like conditions,” Hernandez said. “In addition, we worked with solar panels and other power equipment to supply systems on board satellites and payloads.” 

The Aerospace Corporation has provided independent technical and scientific research, development, and advisory services to the national security space program since 1960. The corporation operates a federally funded research and development center for the United States Air Force’s Space and Missile Systems Center and the National Reconnaissance Office.
